Market Skirt Pattern


Here's a sample of the Market Skirt pattern made up in Amy Butler's Water Bouquet in the Midnight colourway.
This is a nice simple pattern with a gentle a-line shape. It's super-easy to make. No zips or waistband. Just elastic casing around the waist. Very comfy!
It also makes a great early pregnancy or postnatal skirt too. Because, let's face it, if you want to sew maternity clothes, there's not exactly a truckload of options to choose from.
The Water Bouquet is also available in the Mint colourway below.

Laminated Linen

Laminated linen? Ok, so it doesn't make for a very exciting picture, but how practical is this? This morning's breakfast, last night's dinner, simply wipe it clean. Mess sorted.

It looks like a garden variety natural linen, until you touch it and realise it's coated. The coating is a thin matte laminate. Not too shiny. Not too stiff. Just right.

Laminated linen - available from our online fabric store.

New Organic Cotton


We've recently added the latest release Cloud 9 organic cotton prints to the Cloud 9 category. The ones above are my favourites.

We've also added this new collection of organic cotton fabrics called Circa 50 by Birch Fabrics. They are printed on light weight base cloth which is so lusciously soft. Perfect for childrens quilts, quilt covers and clothing.

Echino Birdsong Versatile Skirt

This truly is a versatile skirt! The Make It Perfect Versatile Skirt is by far our best selling skirt pattern. It's a simple wrap skirt that is super-easy to make: no zips, no buttons, no clips, no hooks and eyes, no fuss. It's great for both summer and winter skirts.
We've made this one from the Echino Birdsong fabric in green. You could tone it down a bit for winter with long boots and a cardi, or liven it up in summer with a t-shirt and flat sandals. There's a lot going in this and most of the Echino fabric prints, so I like to tone the rest of the outfit down with plain colours and shapes.

Before Birch. After Birch.

I love a before and after photo. Of anything really. Renovations, botox, weight loss....
So, here's a little chair that's actually gained weight and style. I picked this up ages ago on eBay for $3.50 and had it reupholstered in Lara Cameron's Birch print in Dusty Pink fabric. I'm really pleased with it!
It looks great in my baby daughter's bedroom, especially matched with these gorgeous fabric wall stickers from Love Mae (I used the tree with the birds and positioned it so the longest branch stretches over her cot).
Mae: I DO love you!
